The National: How the first Emirati Arabic dialect database will support struggling pupils

The National: How the first Emirati Arabic dialect database will support struggling pupils. “The Emirati dialect has for the first time been turned into a database to work towards identifying development and speech disorders in children. A research project at UAE University’s Department of Linguistics has copyrighted its own corpus of the Emirati Arabic language. It includes a database of transcribed texts based on six children speaking with their carers at home.”
